Published Ledo Interactive, a subsidiary under Perfect World China, The King of Fighters 97 Online will enter its beta phase (only for Android) tomorrow in China. An official mobile game developed with IP owner, SNK Playmore, the game is based mostly on the popular 97 arcade version.
I am not exactly sure how many characters there are now, but the classic ones such as Iori, Kyo, Mai, Benimaru, Terry, and Athena are part of the confirmed roster. Testers gave very positive reviews for the iOS beta phase held earlier. A China mobile number will be required to apply for the beta.
